I also have Martha Ivany the granddaughter of George and Margaret Ivany of English Harbour. On Martha's marriage record to Stephen Abbott it says that she is from English Harbour, so she would be the daughter of the James and Joan Ivany from English Harbour.
If there were two James Ivany's that married a Joan, then I will have to take a look at it like you said. I probably jumped the gun after having so much trouble with dual names in the Abbott line that I didn't do the due diligence needed to make sure I had the right James and Joan Ivany. Thanks...I'll let you know as soon as I get a chance to look at it.
